Excellent post on the deployment of Lync 2013 via Script: Unifiedme.co.uk
I customized the Lync installation using the Office /admin application (see above) and then pushed this out to users via script/GPO. This is a very basic script to check whether Lync is already installed, if not then will run the setup.exe using the custom installer in the “updates” folder.
REM Automated Installer for Lync 2013 REM Note the setup.exe uses a custom .MSP to install lync with settings, registry keys and product activation. @echo off if exist "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office15\lync.exe" goto quit if exist "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office15\lync.exe" goto quit if exist "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Lync\communicator.exe" goto quit :install \\server\Software\SW_DVD5_Lync_2013_32-BIT_X64_English_MLF_X18-54527\setup.exe :quit exit
I’d be interested to know if there is a much better way to do this as it really is very basic and doesn’t include error handling.
